As a part of National AmeriCorps Week, March 10-17 2012, Mayor of Duluth Don Ness and other local “celebrities” were asked to celebrate by being “Honorary Members for a Day”. Mayor Don Ness visited Lester Park Elementary, City Council Members Emily Larson and Jen Julsrud took a tour of Nettleton Elementary, and School Board member Tom Kasper spent some time at Stowe Elementary. Congressional candidates Jeff Anderson, Tarryl Clark, and Rick Nolan also celebrated the week by participating separately at programming at Homecroft Elementary, Piedmont Elementary and Lowell Elementary. The annual invitation is a chance for local politicians and celebrities to learn about what AmeriCorps does in the community and why it is important to support our programming.
